Hello Mayumi.



YESTERDAY: December 26

Another slow day with the markets seemingly waiting to get through the end of the year. In what is becoming routine, too routine, the market opens a little higher and then sits the rest of the day. Yesterday was no different.

The SPX opened $9 higher and sat in a tight range until the close. The last 30 minutes saw the SPX jump another $7 higher to close up $16.53, the Dow closed up 105.94 (28.621.39), and the NASDAQ closed up 69.51 to settle at 9022.

This was the first time ever that the NASDAQ closed above 9,000, mostly led higher by AAPL (+$5.64) and AMZN (+79.56) at 1868.77.


TODAY: December 27

With 3 days left of trading in 2019, the market seems destined to continue its pattern of opening higher and sitting. If the SPX gets above 3249, this will be the strongest year in the SPX since 1997.


2019: MUCH HIGHER FROM HERE (2506.85 SPX) – (prediction made January 2, 2019) but not a straight line, and not without some volatility. Trump WILL get his wall. China will buckle and blink first. The Fed will go back on their medication, and spend time thinking about what they say (before saying it).

ARE ANY OF THESE COMING TRUE? Look at the exact words I said about “blinking first” a year ago.

If not a POT subscriber, please email us at to be added to the class roster for tonight's class—6pm CST / 7pm EST.



At the end of every POT year, we have a special 2-hour class that talks about what we did right and wrong that year, and the improvements we are making for the next year.

20/20 is going to be HUGE.

In 2019, I cut back on experimental trades and focused a little bit more on hedges and making money. With the account at 150%, people are asking for an even more aggressive year, and we are going to deliver it. Like a NASCAR driver, we will have one foot on the gas when the market is cooperating, and quickly hedge when it moves against us.


We already started a couple “Party Samples” with Short Delta Collars and Gamma Scalping. I am also using each calendar month to introduce one thing on my own that people have not asked for, but I think you would be interested in. These are all new.


Join us tonight at 6:00pm Central to find out what else is new. Contact the office before the market closes to reserve your spot to this free class. If in POT now, you will automatically be included with an invitation being sent.



Up and Running for POT students (so far).

You provide the coffee and we will take care of the rest.
